Boozy Slush Vendor Wet Willie's Shutters After 22 Years in Business

R.I.P. drunk brain freeze.

The sign is gone and the moving truck is full.

November 29 was last call for frozen hangover den Wet Willie's. While it may have not had the most sophisticated cocktails in town, the grain alcohol slushie spot survived 22 years on East Bay Street. Gone are the Call A Cabs and Attitude Improvements — just two of the colorfully-named "frozen daiquiris."

A stop by the bar this morning revealed that the sign is gone and workers are moving out the massive slush machines. In a Facebook post, Wet Willie's states, "This was a quick decision and had a lot to do with the location and building. Let us know if you have any leads for a new location. We'd love to keep our global cooling in Charleston!"

Feel free to leave your Wet Willie's memories in the comments.

Last Call-thank you for 22 years of great times and Cheer! #WetWilliesCharleston
